We gladly avail ourselves of this fine plant, to commemorate tne eminent services
of our friend B. H. Hodgson, Esq., of Dorjiling, to whose exertions the Natural His-
tory of the Himalaya is so much indebted.

We found this large tree bearing ripe fruit in the month of October. As T. Hoclg-
soni, which ripens its fruit at the same season, flowers in early spring, this species
will probably be found to do so too. We propose to dedicate this and mother species
of the Order to Lieutenants Cave and Kaban, of the SiUiet Light Infantry, to whom
we are under great obligations for assistance in forwarding our pursuits while in the
Khasia mountains, and whose gardens at Churra show what skill and perseverance
may accomplish in overcoming the obstacles which an ungenial climate opposes to
horticulture.
